Overlanding – the hardcore way to travel

Posted by:

For most of history, the urge to travel was not something one could act upon. Most folks lived where they were born, and would have been considered lucky to explore even a bit of their own country. Nowadays, we find that hard to imagine. Tourism continues to grow with virtually everyone being a traveler.

However, we can make the argument that traveling has actually become too easy. It used to be a special experience, something you had to plan extensively. Now ...

Moving from California to Texas

Posted by:

Many people say that once you get used to sunny weather, you can never go back. It may not always be the case, but the warmth certainly has a pull on us. That said, not all the warmer states are the same.

At first glance, California and Texas may seem a bit similar to you. Both get hot, both have deserts. Dig a little deeper though, and the differences start piling up. From culture to geography, from foods to climate, both ...

The cars Americans want that Europeans have

Posted by:

This is why I find it fascinating that although cars dominate the scene, their kind varies from country to country. The Lada Zhiguli that we have transported from Europe makes this crystal clear. The model can be seen quite frequently in the Eastern parts of the Old Continent. Here in the States though? You can probably count them on your fingers!

Of course, you can expect that with vintage cars. We have some that Europeans want and ...

The heart of the beast: Jeep Corvette CJ-Z06

Posted by:

That said, even good ol’ Rusty cannot match the craziness of certain vehicles out there. Simply calling them “cars” would not do them any justice either. They spring out of the minds of enthusiasts who like wondering what would happen if you mash 2 models together at 3 a.m. But instead of remaining hypothetical inventions, they come to life.

Today we have in focus one such mashup of a car. Our team at Corsia Logistics has transported a beast, which deserves ...

Humans vs. AI in auto transport and logistics

Posted by:

It seems like almost every day we get some news on the development of artificial intelligence. Back in the day, a program could not stand a chance against a human in chess. Nowadays, AI systems train one another how to play the game and they have become virtually unbeatable.

All would have been fine if AI was only involved in games. However, we all know that artificial intelligence is about to replace drivers. Robots have already taken ...

The golden age of American station wagons

Posted by:

Do you remember the times when SUVs did not rule the American streets? When cars had more character and less sharp edges? When our idea of aesthetics did not trump over sheer practicality?

Those were the times when we had a very special affinity towards a particular type of vehicle – the American station wagon. I am not saying that we were head over heels for it, but we appreciated its utility. So what happened? Why have we ...

Learning to appreciate wagons: 1961 Dodge Dart Seneca

Posted by:

Do you know what really fascinates me about people? The way our perception of design evolves with time. Things that had been considered ugly at first, became eccentric two decades later. Then some more years pass and the eccentric have simply become elegant.

It would not have bothered me if we were at least consistent. However, the vintage design we admire gets ridiculed in its modern variations. It seems like people find some intrinsic value in the things of old.

These were ...

Corsia Essay Contest

Posted by:

It seems like one of the most underrated things in today’s society is education. Not because people do not want to learn, but because they think learning is “just a stage of life”. That is why most of us drop the habit of constant learning by the time we get through college.

Learning is so much more than going to school. You have to be willing to gain knowledge and hone your skills throughout your entire life. It does not end ...

Peugeot 205 GTi – The car that saved the brand

Posted by:

The world has seen many car brands that have become iconic. Here in the States, we definitely cherish such classics. However, the truth is that almost every company has at least one or two respectable models that are worth looking into. And yet… some we have completely forgotten!

Recently we found out that Peugeot is coming back to the US after about 30 years of complete absence. But many people on this side of the ocean have ...
